Frontage Road Construction Update

Good morning,

Frenchtown Frontage Road reconstruction is ongoing November 5-9, 2018.

Paving crews will continue finishing paving of the shared-use path and all private approaches. This work should be completed within the next few weeks. Paving operations are not successful when wet conditions are present. Work will be occurring as dry conditions allow. 

MDT anticipates all work for the 2018 construction season will be completed in mid-November.

Thank you to all those who attended the Construction Carnival on Monday night. We had a great time!

Pilot cars will be moving drivers through the area where needed. Drivers are encouraged to be mindful of changing conditions and to be alert for workers. Fines double when workers are present.

The shared-use path will be closed to the public until further notice due to heavy equipment working in the area.

Pedestrian and cyclist traffic is advised not to use the Frontage Road in this area as an alternative route due to the loss of pavement. Heavy equipment is near and on the roadway which makes it unsafe for foot traffic.

The project hotline is also available during business hours by calling 406-207-4484. The Huson East webpage ( has additional information. To register for text updates, please text "HUSONEAST" to 41411.

Please let me know if there are questions or concerns at any point. I'm happy to help however I can.

Thank you for your time. We hope you have a safe and enjoyable weekend.
